Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

It may not have the bulletproof branding of some competitors, but the RLX is not without charms. Its old beak grille has finally been replaced by a prettier pentagonal nose, and a sharp 10-speed automatic now pairs to the standard 310-hp V-6 engine. Our choice is the Sport Hybrid, which uses a 377-hp powertrain derived from the one used in the NSX and has Acura’s SH-AWD system to aid handling. We like driving the RLX, but the lack of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto still stings.

Pros
Strong performance,
comfortable seats,
standard driver aids,
high value.

Cons
Invisible styling,
slow navigation system,
complex two-screen infotainment interface,
subpar paint quality.

Pros
Comfortable, spacious seats
Refined, fuel-efficient powertrains
Lots of standard safety features

Small trunk and no folding rear seats
Unexciting handling and firm ride
Dull interior styling

The Acura RLX receives a variety of updates for 2018. They include new front-end styling, new front seats, an upgraded suite of driver safety aids, a retuned suspension, a new 10-speed transmission for the front-wheel-drive trim (called P-AWS), and a slightly smaller battery in the Sport Hybrid. Acura has simplified the RLX's trim levels as well.

PROS
Sport Hybrid model offers fast, fuel-efficient acceleration
Long list of standard safety and convenience features
Spacious cabin and seating, especially for rear passengers

CONS
Apple CarPlay and Android Auto aren't available
Steering feels disconnected from the road
Interior design looks dated
Dual-screen infotainment system isn't intuitive to use
